Make an Appointment - Sentinel Pantry

North Florida College stands with our students who are struggling to focus on their studies due to food insecurity. We know that you cannot learn when you are hungry and the pressure to maintain a household can be overwhelming. Please don't give up! We have resources and partners that are here to help you through the challenges of food costs and keep you on track to reach your educational goals.
